At Silverado we believe that how a person leaves this earth is as important as how they spent their life on it. We see hospice care as the punctuation at the end of a life well-lived. It’s an opportunity to ensure a noble passing and provide the gift of peace, honoring what a loved one meant to the lives they touched.
To help with this, our hospice care includes the following:
- Full-spectrum patient comfort care and pain management
- Guidance and support for families, including education on the disease process, bereavement support and maximizing quality of life for the entire family
- Care in-home, at a hospital or facilities such as assisted living communities
By providing personalized medical, social and spiritual care, our hospice team gives patients a chance to experience life to the fullest and allow their families a chance to create cherished memories.

- Hospice Medical Directors: Liaison between the attending physician, patient and family who also provides information and insight into the patient’s needs
- Social Worker: Advises patients and families when needed, develops and integrated care plan based on emotional, physical, social and financial needs, and assists with bereavement support after a loved one has passed
